The first time I heard about Mr. Chetan Bhagat and his “The 3 Mistakes of My Life” is exactly 3 years ago. I was going through a corporate training. On second day of the training, the training manager came for a Q&A session. She told how much she loves reading and we should keep reading. She told about one of her favorite writer, Mr. Chetan Bhagat.
After 3 long years I found the book and time for concentrating on the novel. I started reading the book, and… guess what… the prologue drew my all attentions at once. Its awesome.
The 3 Mistakes of My Life by Chetan Bhagat
As the tagline says, “A Story about Business, Cricket and Religion”, well said, indeed. This is a glimpse of India, depicting the most 3 issues of daily life of Indians: Business, Cricket and Religion.
As I said, this is “glimpse”. Life is much more complex when emotions plays the vital role in most of people’s mind. But the most discussed issues are depicted in well writing by Mr. Chetan Bhagat.
The writer, I should say, is Awesome in writing.
This is a story of young, aspirant and honest Businessman of Ahmedabad and his friends and families. This is a story of his 3 Mistakes.
The writer shows the daily life of Ahmedabad old town inhabitants.
And yes, obviously there is a love story. That leads to different corners of life. Love for friends and family, love for cricket and love for overcoming challenges – when put in a place with the excellence of a writer then that is a superb literature.
This is not a typical love story nor a typical youth goon’s story. This is life. This is not a mere story. This is profound insights of a writer.
The book is one of the top 10 big-selling books of India, yes, it is.
You should read the novel.
